The Epcot International Festival of the Arts will return in 2018. While Disney hasn’t released exact dates yet, the 2017 Flower and Garden Outdoor Kitchen Passport does advertise the Festival of the Arts as returning in “Early 2018” in the Upcoming Events section. Disney has also updated their Festival of the Arts page on their website to say 2018.
The Festival of the Arts was, by all accounts, a popular addition to the already crammed festival lineup at Epcot. Featuring the Visual, Culinary, and Performing Arts, the event spanned 5 weekends in early 2017, running Friday – Monday. It has been said that the event was so popular, Disney is in the process of securing contracts for next year already. Personally, we loved the event and can’t wait to see what Disney adds for the 2018 incarnation.
